    I do not understand your post.

    You cannot voluntarily end your employment contract and claim Universal Credit.

    If you have opportunity to stay working and can earn enough not to need Universal Credit, then that is what you need to do.

    Use a Benefits Calculator by visiting either Entitledto or Turn2us, to see how your current employment earnings affect Universal Credit.
    The comments I post are personal opinion. Always refer to official information sources before relying on internet forums. If you have a problem with any organisation, enter into their official complaints process at the earliest opportunity, as sometimes complaints have to be started within a certain time frame.

    No such figure, depends on monthly earnings if you are entitled that month to a payment. Universal credit does not work on yearly income like tax credits.

    If you leave voluntary without good reason you could face a loss of benefits for I think its up to 13 weeks.

    The work coach you see when you do your first commitments should ask about this.
